Are Man Utd the stuffiest twats ever? With the standard 4 minutes added time? Does someone on the sidelines advise the ref perhaps? I wonder how much is added on when they are winning, probably 2 or 3 I would guess.
Are Stoke City the unstuffiest twats ever? It?s not so much if-onlys regarding missed chances, it?s if only the fucking ref could see what was going on. This time it was Martin Atkinson, again, causing havoc.
Then we had our own Tim Howard, he set the wall up like O?Reilly the builder from Fawlty Towers, it?s another error from the keeper I?m afraid.
Praise must go to Uncle Woy, to be fair. It?s taken him 11 games and a fraction of the £200m Rafa spent to come to the same conclusion the Fat Waiter took 4 years to formulate. Yes, that the RS are total shite without Torres and Gerrard. So it?s happy days for them lot as their hopes continually rest on playing them two for 60 games solid. Ain?t gonna happen and the arse will once again fall out of their patched up breeches.
Now that Bolton have battered Spurs, shall we stop patting ourselves on the back for the point at the Lane, as Wednesday?s game now looks to be a massive test against the victors of the victors who battered the European Champions. 1-0 to us then.
Hopefully Arteta has managed to see Man City?s David Silva against West Brom, and learnt how to thread a forward ball into a goal scoring opportunity, class play that Mikel is capable of but we aren?t seeing it too much.
Are we better than Arsenal? Are Newcastle better than us? Who is the worst team in the league so far? West Ham, I suppose, but would you feel confident that 3 points is a given if the next game was them? At this rate, there?ll be three half-decent teams actually going down this season.
Christ, we are in the bottom half again after being bloody 7th for a few hours last weekend.
Two home games ahead, 6 points the target, who can tell? This league is all over the place at the moment, possibly due to unfancied teams having a go and actually getting something.
You know what Mr Moyes; it might be worth a try.

Main problem for me is all these players coming back to fitness giving Moyes options. Is he really better with a crocked and limited squad? Maybe Bill knows this each summer.

I saw the Bolton-Spurs game and Bolton didn't look like a bad side. They actually have some decent players like Gary Cahill, Kevin Davies, Johan Elmander and Martin Petrov.
But at home against a side like Bolton, we must win. Same situation as against Stoke, which we just barely won against.
I must agree with you that Howard is becoming a problem for the team. I guess Moyes knows that as well, but I still don't think he would let Mucha take a PL game.

You can usually work out at least two of the teams going down by now but this year I can't. I watched the full match against Blackpool and I was quite impressed by them. Yes, we would have won if we had taken our chances but then again in the last ten minutes we could have lost it.
That Charlie Adam is one class act. If you went by Saturday's game, he looked a better player that Mikel Arteta. Interesting that his agent is Kenny Moyes, the brother of our Davey. Nowt much left on his contract so he may be leaving in January. How about sell Heitinga and with the proceeds buy Taylor from Newcastle and Adam from Blackpool?

Bottom 4: Stoke, Wigan, Wolves, West Ham
Hardly all over the place. The other 12 clubs are a lot more even than in previous years and it's close and competitive... how it should be.

Howard should never have had to attempt the save, but it's his own fault that he had to.

Good posting David. I think we're all confused at present. I watched the RS beat Chelsea, hoping Chelsea would beat them (the only time I like to see Chelsea win. Oh, maybe against Man C as well). They just out-played them, plain and simple. Torres remembered where the net was as well. I hope they soon go back to their normal standard of the season so far!
